What a shame about today's weather for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee - it's been so hot here over the last week. Maybe it will brighten up later for the Queen's jubilation trip down the Thames. More than one thousand sailing craft trailing behind.
Even yesterday at Brentwood's Strawberry Fair we enjoyed a diamond feel with stalls so well decorated. Warm atmosphere in the Phoenix 98FM marquee even so early, but had a chance to meet the new Mayor of Brentwood, Councillor Ann Coe and family. Lovely to meet a brand new newly-wed couple on Shenfield Common - rather a large chair, though!
